Location: Atlanta, Georgia, USA
Architect: BLDGS

Until 1999, Villa de Murph was an unappealing circa-1947 automotive parts warehouse that had stood empty since the owner died seven years earlier. After demolishing much of the building, BLDGs started from the walls, the slab, the rust and and the roof joists, creating a combined studio and home including a private courtyard with fireplace.
